My Rhode Island blogging friends did this post last week and I thought I would join in on the fun! I thought it would be a fun way for my readers to learn a little bit about me personally, since I seem to always talk about my kids:)
1. I graduated college in 3 years. I did a 7 year college-dental plan with 3 years being at Lehigh University and 4 years of Dental School at University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine.
2. I am a practicing dentist who works three days a week (20 hours a week). I have been practicing for close to 10 years now…Gasp! My 10 year Dental Reunion is in May.
3. Dental School was the hardest 4 years of life, in every which way possible, but I survived and met some great friends.
4. I entered Dental School at 20- I was a youngin’- I could not even go to a bar with my friends:(
5. I used a fake ID 2 weeks before my 21st birthday and got busted. I ended up losing my license for 6 months, but nothing ever got put on my record. I never did anything wrong when I was young, so I got a free pass from my parents. This was the only dumb thing I did in my life.
6. I got robbed in Dental School.
7. I gained 35 pounds my first year of Dental School. I lost it over the summer going into my second year and never gained anything back in the past 10 years!
8. I have naturally jet black hair but have been coloring it for the past 10 years. I love being blond but everyone said they loved me with black hair, and wish I would go back.
9. I think the saying is true- blonds have more fun:)
10. I was in a very bad dating relationship in my life. I have learned that I never wanted to be treated the way I was, and in turn ended up marrying the greatest guy who walked the face of the planet (he is too me anyway)
11. I honestly think my husband is the nicest person I have ever met.
12. My husband is also a dentist (orthodontist).
13. We never talk about dentistry at home.
14. We are fanatics when it comes to our kids teeth-duh!
15. I am an avid tennis player. I play three times a week.
16. I played tennis till 39 weeks pregnant with both kids.
17. As a result of #16, I lost all my pre -pregnancy weight one month post partum both times.
18. I am a huge chocolate fan but I try to limit it to a special treat.
19. I am also a spin fantatic but don’t have the chance to spin that much with all the tennis.
20. I gained exactly 29 pounds with both pregnancies.
21. I gained 24/29 pounds in my first trimester with Hayley- true story!
22. I lost 2 pounds in the first trimester with Zane.
23. I love the name Zane but my husband never really did. I won on that battle.
24. Both of my grandparents never got to see any of their grandchildren:(
25. My son Zane is named after my grandma, Zelda.
26. My daughter Hayley is named after my grandma, Helen.
27. My mom is one of my best friends. I tell her everything.
28. My sister is a pop singer and tours nationally.
29. My dad is a CPA, my mom is a calculus teacher, and I love math- it was always my best subject.
30. I was a huge dork when it came to studying when I was younger.
31. Hawaii is my favorite place to visit- I have gone twice in a 18 month span.
32. I hope to get a house in Hawaii when we retire.

34. I got deathly sick in Mexico and will never return! It was that bad.
35. I gained 10 pounds on my honeymoon but it was mostly water weight.
36. I have been on 20 cruises. I love to cruise!
37. My first kiss was in sixth grade. He is my Facebook friend.

44. I went into the hospital at 9 cm dilated and had no idea I was having contractions.
45. Both of my kids were born with very dark hair and a lot of it.
46. First words out of my OB after he delivered Zane was “Oh my G-d”. He then paused for a few seconds while I had a minor heart attack and continued his sentence -“He has so much hair”
47. I absolutely love being a mom to Hayley and Zane.
48. I want one more child.
49. My husband is done. You see a dilemma? I think he will cave eventually…
50. I hope to volunteer in the kids oncology department in our local hospital. It has always been something I wanted to do to give back.
Hope you enjoyed and learn some fun facts about me.
